Famous quotes containing the words side and/or sunny:

    If the heart beguiles itself in its choice [of a wife], and imagination will give excellencies which are not the portion of flesh and blood:Mwhen the dream is over, and we awake in the morning, it matters little whether ‘tis Rachael or Leah,—be the object what it will, as it must be on the earthly side ... of perfection,—it will fall short of the work of fancy, whose existence is in the clouds.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    O he did whistle and she did sing,
    And all the bells on earth did ring
    For joy our Saviour Christ was born
    On Christmas Day in the morning.
    —Unknown. As I Sat on a Sunny Bank. . .
